For a global insurance centre such as London, the tech that underpins the placing of risk; who rates risk, and then underwrites particular aspects of a commercial or public sector policy, is a crucial factor. Everyone is in a race to win clients with out-of-the-box systems, especially when it comes to syndicates, but what the client needs is a cast iron guarantee that XYZ will pay up if the worst happens. Here’s some news from WNS, who along with other players in fintech are building the blocks of trust that will underpin insurance in the future. Still baffled by blockchain? It’s basically Lego with an indelible timestamp if that helps.
